OC Fair

OC Fair

The OC Fair & Event Center (OCFEC) in Costa Mesa, CA, is home to the annual OC Fair in the summer plus the Centennial Farm year-round.

Centrally located in Orange County with 150 acres of diverse, flexible event space, OCFEC is also the chosen location for a variety of events throughout the year for enthusiasts of arts, crafts, classic and custom cars, cultural celebrations, pets, collectibles and more.

Every summer, the annual OC Fair takes over the property for 23 days of food, exhibits, carnival rides and games, shopping, adrenaline-inducing action sports, rocking tribute bands and headline entertainment in the premiere Pacific Amphitheatre. Orange County fair concerts feature some of the most popular headlines from todays era and yesteryear.

During the school year, the Centennial Farm offers free tours for local school children to experience first-hand the rich agricultural history of Orange County. The Farm is also open free to the general public most of the year.
